The Herb and Plant Sale at the Heutte Center has been a staple of the Ghent Community for over 30 years. It’s a chance to buy plants and herbs, talk with Master Gardeners, and participate in herb lectures. You’ll find what you came for, and leave with so much more.
The sale was started over 30 years ago as part of its work to provide information about herbs. It has evolved into an event of lovely smells, sights and knowledge. All bringing together the vision of Fred Heutte, highlighting the herb knot garden on the center of the grounds.
The Fred Heutte Center is the centerpiece in the development of Ghent Square. The center is supported through volunteerism. The rental of the facility includes not only weddings, professional and social clubs, but classes available to the community. Take a second and check out the bulletin board.
A neighborhood passive park surrounds the Fred Heutte Center and includes open areas, along with gardens which are tended by the City of Norfolk and members of the Norfolk Master Gardeners. The Gross Memorial Garden on the east side of the 1-acre of gardens features vegetables and fruits donated to the Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia.
